Report for weeks of 2/23 & 3/1

With difficulties at finding new articles related to connect, as well as some poor time management (with a dash of senioritis), I definitely need to pick it up posting wise, and keep up to date with my assigned times.

However, I feel that I have helped with decisions and contributions in class, such as helping create and color coordinate the assigned posting times, created a group Facebook page for all of us to communicate, as well as putting in some prototypes for potential logos.

Overall at this point, the main thing to take away is that I need to be better at keeping up with my assigned postings.
